Cybersecurity Skills Journal

Abstract and Paper Development Workshop (PDW)

Special Issue on Diversifying the Cybersecurity Workforce

Submissions considered until November 30th with priority provided to submissions received by July 31st.

Abstracts are considered on a first-in, first-reviewed basis. Early submission ensures that your abstract receives the most support and assistance from peer reviewers. Acceptable manuscripts that are not completed in time to be published in the Special Issue will be included in future CSJ issues. 

Why should you attend the PDW?

In a Paper Development Workshop, you will have an opportunity to work with members of the Cybersecurity Skills Journal Editorial Board and Peer Review Panel to discuss your idea for, or draft of, a manuscript reporting evidence-based practices, theoretical frameworks, or case studies of skilled application or instruction of cybersecurity tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs). Workshops will be scheduled periodically either for individual authors or small groups of authors.

The purpose of a PDW is two-fold. First, we aim to provide participants insights into the actionable steps they should take to make their research more relevant for cybersecurity practitioners, instructors, and/or researchers. Second, we provide practitioner and scholar authors with developmental feedback on their current projects related to advancing the assessment, development or implementation of cybersecurity skills. While we hope that the papers will eventually be submitted to CSJ, the purpose of the PDW is broader, namely to improve the quality of cybersecurity research, to help develop and disseminate effective practices, and to bring practitioners and scholars into the conversation around skilled performance in cybersecurity.

When you register for the session, if you have not already done so, we ask that you submit a structured abstract describing your research. For information on the elements of a structured abstract please access the Cybersecurity Skills Journal web page at:
